N A U M • the mayan God of the mind + consciousness
Naum was founded upon a love and admiration for the art & culture of Guatemala, and a desire to empower artisans in it’s rural communities. We design our pieces in collaboration with talented, native artists in an effort to provide a sustainable outlet for their skill, and a living for themselves and their families.
The Mayans revered jade as an all-powerful healing stone. Each stone possesses individual meaning and properties unique to its color. See Naum + Jade to learn more about the power of each stone.
Cruz & his wife, Eimi, work together to source the stones, and then cut them to shape. As the composition of Jade varies, no two pieces can be the same.
Naum is dedicated to providing ethically made products, while bettering the lives of our artisans. Each purchase made impacts our artisans and their communities directly, allowing us to provide them with the skills needed to be self-sustaining. Our hope is to expand and employ more artisans in impoverished communities, and to build a long-term ‘give-back’ initiative to further enhance the lives of those in rural Guatemala.
